Nomination accepted :-)

I'd suggest we don't actually create the branch until the new year
to give people time to prepare for it.  For one thing, with all the
recent build issues, I'm not sure it's in an amazingly stable state
right now.

There are also a number of fixes I've seen being directed upstream
that should really be in IcedTea6 (e.g. the javadoc class file issue
which I've hit when building java-gnome).
